ErinShannon Say more :
OP here, I freaked out the first few minutes and was like " DAD THERE IS A FUCKING BUG IN MY EAR WHAT DO I DO?!?! " and kept trying to dig it out. So I googled " what to do when a bug falls into you ear. " top suggestion was to not stick anything ( like fingers ) in there to get it out because you could push it further in and to get some grass so the bug can climb onto something it knows to escape. So thats what I did. If I had of kept looking there were probably easier ways but at the time I was worried it would go deeper or something. It is the grossest, weirdest sounding and feeling I have ever experienced. Especially since whatever it was, it had wings and was trying to fly inside my damn ear. Banging ones head against a pillow while laying down doesnt help either, just made it make more noise. Thanks for all comments saying I was brave. Haha.

It's not like OP had many choices. Staying calm and waiting allows you to get the thing out. Trying to knock it loose works, but not against all kinds of insects. Using fire or poison would've done more unintended than intended harm. I mean, I suppose they could've tried to kill it with a screwdriver or something...

After learning that this actually happens and one day waking up with a noise in my ear (luckily it was just tinnitus) I now sleep with my ears covered by a satin bonnet and sleep headphones or I use earplugs. I refuse to take chances.

Best thing to do in a situation like that is to remain calm, pour baby oil into your ear until you hear the buzzing stop. Once it does, go to the emergency room and have a professional remove it

This once happened to me. Was drifting off to sleep and bam bug flies into my ear. I totally panicked - rang my mum and she said to pour oil in your ear so it kills the bug and it floats out. Was completely gross...but it worked!
